I used all crab and forgot to buy the olives, but the melts still turned out well. It's a recipe that helps get a meal on the table quickly.

These are really good! I had all of the ingredients on hand except for Dijon mustard, so I substituted honey mustard. My husband used up the leftover seafood filling the next day by toasting the English muffin halves, buttering them, spreading the filling over them and microwaving just long enough to get the cheese all nice and melty.
